Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Justin Blackmon did not participate in practice on Friday, but he's expected to play against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, regardless. According to Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union, Blackmon said there's "no question" he's playing Sunday.
Blackmon is officially listed as questionable with a hamstring issue on the injury report. He only took part in one practice all week. The Jaguars desperately need Blackmon ready to go, thanks to injuries to Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders.
In two games since returning from a four-game suspension, Blackmon has caught 19 passes for 326 yards, more than any receiver over the past two weeks. He'll be catching passes from quarterback Chad Henne this week, as Blaine Gabbert is still injured.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners who carried Blackmon for four weeks despite his suspension are now living the good life. He's paid off big time, and he should continue to do so. Henne is not a good quarterback to have in fantasy, as he'll throw plenty of interceptions, but he also puts up the yardage. That means Blackmon will be successful even if his quarterback and his team are not.
